Today the web-news-media-sphere lit up with the announcement of the Turner Prize 2012 shortlist. Amongst the 4 finalists is the film maker and artist Luke Fowler. Since 2009, I've been commissioned by the one of the UK's largest supporter of the arts, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, to take the official photographs of the 8 recipients of their prestigious Awards For Artists prize (split between visual artists and composers). Luke received the prize in 2010.
Once the official photos were taken, I grabbed this sweet shot of him during the pre-award ceremony private drinks reception at the fabulous RIBA building.
The Turner Prize exhibition will open on October 20th at Tate Britain and the winner will be announced live on Channel 4 on December 3rd 2012.
Good luck Luke!
